Trend Spin - Stripes

Today I am guest hosting with Laura at Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin at The Fashion Canvas for their weekly trend spin link up. Link up your favorite stars and stripes style and join in on the fun.
GET THE LOOK:

Who doesn't love stripes these days? They definitely make a statement when paired with solid colors like what I am wearing today. At the same time, stripes also go hand in hand when it comes to pattern mixing your wardrobe. I have mixed stripes and prints over and over again; florals, tartan and even camouflage. Basic stripe tees, jackets or bottoms don't have to be the statement piece in your outfit, but a neutral as well.

In other news, I scored a pair of Zara dupes on the Go Jane website. I have been scouring eBay and Poshmark to try and find these heels that sold out quick a few seasons ago. Every time I found a pair the person selling them wanted $75 or more dollars. Um, no thanks...not for a used pair of shoes.

Anyway, I was doing my weekly perusing on Go Jane and discovered these pointy toe ankle strap heels I am wearing today. You guys, they are almost identical to the Zara ones and less than $26.00. 

In case you are wondering, yes, they are comfortable and fit true to size. I can't wait to wear them again and are a perfect heel for every season. 

Have you found any good dupes lately? I swear, it seems like if you wait long enough and have the patience, some company out there will figure out a way to recreate a popular style for a fraction of the cost.

Also linking up with Lauren at Style Elixir.

I actually ordered those Zara heels but quickly realized two things: Zara shoe sizing is CRAZY and I cannot wear 4" heels. So sad because they are beautiful shoes. But you better believe I'm going to check out Go Jane! Thanks for sharing, love! And SOO excited that you linked up with my girl, Laura today!
